Week 2, 11:00 – 12:30, Room 255, Floor 2

Plurality is at the center of contemporary (formal) semantic and pragmatic investigations.

In recent years, there has been more and more research focusing on plurality-related phenomena using experimental methods. In this course, the students will be provided with an overview of the semantic and pragmatic theories of plurality and also with the novel experimental methodologies used to investigate various aspects of plurality in a cross-linguistic perspective. The aim of the course is to enable students to conduct their own (theoretical and experimental) research in this domain.
